9th Annual Elder Law for the Health Sector Conference
Addressing key legal and ethical challenges to support the best interests and wellbeing of the ageing population
Those who attended the Elder Law Conference saw firsthand the importance of understanding the needs of New Zealand's elderly generation. As this demographic continues to grow, it is vital systems are put in place to cater to these growing numbers and the ethical and legal complexities that surround it. In these difficult situations, there often lies a grey area whereby medical professionals need to weigh up the rights of the patient versus ensuring they receive the proper care they need.
The Elder Law Conference brought together medical professionals and key stakeholders in aged care to discuss the medical, ethical and legal issues surrounding the care of our elderly in New Zealand. Throughout the two days, the discussions highlighted a changing focus in society to care for this population, but also the need to do more to support elderly and aged care workers. These are tough decisions to make, but such discussion of issues goes a long way to helping solve these issues.
Join us at the next Elder Law Conference to help develop a focus on the key issues and opportunities to support some of New Zealand's most vulnerable population with case studies, legislative reviews and interesting insights to prepare you and your organisation.
